‘The time is now’: The new wave of digitisation (and what it means)

Events / 28-02-22 / Share Link

There can be no doubt that significant change is afoot in the world of banking, with a wave of digital adoption partly driven by the pandemic but also reflecting an ambitious regional culture and leadership strategy, with several proposed new independent banks signifying a key moment in the digital 'journey', as the industry increasingly looks for holistic solutions.

With momentum increasing and with a wide range of initiatives and collaborations being undertaken, Devid Jegerson (Executive Vice-President, Head of Customer Experience & Platform Development, National Bank of Fujairah), Selima Mehiri (Head of Trade & Commodities Finance, RAKBANK), Olivier Crespin (CEO & Co-Founder, Zand), Motasim Iqbal (Managing Director, Head of Transaction Banking UAE, Standard Chartered), Viacheslav Oganezov (Co-Founder & CEO, Finverity), Raja Debnath (Co-Founder, Veefin Solutions) and Saeeda Jaffar (GM GCC & Board Member, Visa) in this session at GTR MENA 2022, focused on the latest conversation touchpoints, including whether banks should partner with fintechs or 'go it alone', the evolution of digital products, challenges faced by start-ups and challengers in competing on offerings and achieving scale (whilst still being subject to capital requirements), as well as the opportunity digital provides in the creation of a thriving marketplace for those keen to invest in trade's potential.
